Well it is official....

Sent payment yesterday and it was shipped out today.

It has a couple of chips here and there and pretty large gash on the back.. The neck is in great shape

Here is a teaser pic... from the seller...

BTW I got it for $366 shipped.....

Yes all of my RG770's (for the most part) will be stock.

I still have my trusty RG770FM since I was 15..which is now 20 years old... (You do the math to figure out my age lol)... Which is stock..

My Other RG770DXRR Reissue as a Air Norton TZ combo.. I bought one used here in SD for $450 about 2 years back.. Then I sold the F2 and F4 pups here for only $25..... Didn't know how sought after they were....

I know a family portrait is in order.. I want to finish my 777DY tribute project before I take a group photo..

Thanks guys....

But before I get any more kudos on the price I should share the ding/ gashes/imperfections...

Neck and fingerboard look nice and clean






2 chips on the body...



Cracked pickguard - I might replace it...



Not sure what I can do here.. Not too bad.. I can live with it...

Re: NGD/Touch-ups - RG770DXVM

No fading on the p-ups.. EDGE appears to be in VERY good condition.. Slight signs of pitting from this picture.




Neck pocket crack.. I have the same crack on my other RG770's





To be touched up with some filler, Nail Polish to match the color then Clear..





Smaller Gash...

Yep--I sure did. It was near mint--one small ding the size of a pinhead. Sold it to a fellow Jemsiter that damaged it after he received the package--then tried to claim that it arrived that way. That's why I take pics of all guitars I ship right before they go out.

Was the Fretboard dirty or is it the lighting?

Re: NGD/Touch-ups - RG770DXVM

Love these guitars, but they're so hard to come by :\

There is an idiot selling a blue RG770DX on eBay for £750....has he lost his marbles?

It's the lighting--the fretboard was spotless.
